PLAY ~ "ODYSSEUS AND HIS WILD ADVENTURES"

Based on Homer's The Odyssey of Greek Mythology.
Adapted for the stage by Eva Canellos.
Directed by Helene, Alexandra, and Gabrielle Nemchik.

Our hero, King Odysseus of Ithaca, seeks to return home after the long Trojan War, but he must get past angry gods, a man-eating one-eyed monster, and a goddess who wants to marry him. Meanwhile, evil suitors back home are trying to force his wife to choose a new husband who will take over the throne!

Act I: Troy, Circe's Island, The Cyclops' Island
Act II: Calypso's Island
Act III: Ithaca

A big thanks to our actors, directors and producers (parents!) for the hours upon hours of hard work! Break a PODI!
